TITLE: A Moment of Silence
GENRE: Chick Palahniuk (this slays me!)
On a cold and bright March morning, Thomas Hart walks into the law office of McKinley Kerr, his former employer, and opens fire.
Caroline Brister, a paralegal, is the only survivor.
Six months later, she and her husband are in a new town, living paycheck to paycheck in a silent apartment.
It's only after her hands go numb that her dead coworkers appear, with answers to questions Caroline doesn't want to ask.
A MOMENT OF SILENCE is one woman's noirish, darkly funny, and sometimes surreal journey from post traumatic stress disorder to discovering that nothing ever really dies - especially the truth.
There's not a chance in the world I'm going to miss asking for or reading pages from anyone clever enough to come up with "Chick Palahniuk". Those two words did it. Without it, it's pretty much the right form but not that enticing. See what two well chosen, clever words can do? Dog, I love good writing!
